JOINT DEVELOPMENT: AN ECONOMIC INPUT

JOINT DEVELOPMENT IS A SUBSET OF PLANNING BASED ON AN INTEGRATION OF SOCIAL, PHYSICAL AND TRANSPORTATION PLANNING. IT DIFFERS FROM PLANNING IN THAT IT IS BASED ON A TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM. JOINT DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS ARE UNLIKELY TO SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT THE NUMBER OF JOBS IN A METROPOLITAN AREA OR INCREASE THE LEVEL OF AGGREGATE INCOME. THE ECONOMIC BENEFITS THAT MIGHT ACCURE TO A COMMUNITY FROM A JOINT DEVELOPMENT PROJECT ARE DISCERNED IN TERMS OF ITS UNIQUE CONTRIBUTION TO URBAN SPACE. IT IS A TOOL FOR CHANGING THE URBAN FORM. TWO BENEFITS THAT JOINT DEVELOPMENT CAN CREATE ARE THE IMPROVEMENT OF ACCESS FROM THE URBAN POOR AREAS AND A VIABLE OPTION FOR HIGH DENSITY LIVING FOR THOSE DESIRING SUCH A LIFE STYLE. METHODS BY WHICH THE ECONOMISTS CAN CONTRIBUTE TO THE JOINT DEVELOPMENTS ARE ANALYZED. A COST EFFECTIVENESS METHOD IS RECOMMENDED FOR NONQUANTIFIABLE BENEFITS IN SOCIAL POLICY DESISIONS. /AUTHOR/
